HC Deb 29 November 1974 vol 882 c267W
Mr. Magee

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what part he is playing to bring together the two sides in the labour dispute at the London Coliseum Theatre; what report he can make on progress so far; and what prospect he can hold out of eventual success.

Mr. Hugh Jenkins

This is in the first instance a matter between the management of the English National Opera Company and its employees and their representatives. The independent Conciliation and Arbitration Service is standing by and is ready to be called in. I have been kept informed of the situation and I understand that negotiations are still proceeding.
